Who We Are

On the day that BC’s first credit union opened its doors history was in the making. Running a financial institution on the principles of democracy may not seem like a radical idea today, but in the first half of the 20th century, when profit-motivated banks made it difficult for the average citizen to borrow or invest, it was revolutionary.

Ever since, credit unions have helped shape the economic and social quality of life in British Columbia. As our history shows, the balance of service excellence, sound financial practices and a commitment to community has attracted more and more British Columbians over the decades.

At NDCU we strive to “keep interest local”.
